    Hello all,:)

    Personally I have been frustrated that I could not find this answer on any of the boards. It took many attempts, much searching - and then I figured it out. so here is the answer.

    if you want to add phplist to your cron jobs - use something similar to the following:

    10 10 * * * cd '/home/username/public_html/phplist/admin/' ; php -q index.php -p processqueue > /dev/null ;

    The two problems I found was that the user cannot "see" /home, but could see its directories under home. Hence the cd /... is required.

    Secondly, I found that NO username or password needs to be piped in.

    Try it - see if this works for you. It is what I have been looking for for a month.
